Today we take a tour through one of Europe's most charming cities - Český Krumlov, located in the Bohemia region of the Czech Republic. We begin in Svornosti Square - the town square located in the heart of the city. Its been here since medieval times - and today its lined by a number of old shops and antique stores.
The Český Krumlov State Castle is one of the most popular tourist attractions in the city. Built on top of a steep cliff on the banks of the Vlatva River, the views from here are great - especially during sunsets. Its one of the most marvelous sights in the entire region - built back in the 13th century, today it houses a museum with exhibitions running frequently.
Nighttime is often quiet here - making it a good time to get away from the crowds. The Virgin Mary statue located in the middle of the old square is one of the best sights at night - its hard to miss.
Christmas markets are a time tested tradition in central European towns and cities - and the one hosted yearly in the town square is quite the popular attraction. With its towering Christmas tree, countless stalls, and falling snow - it truly makes for a magical atmosphere.
The Vlatva River snakes and loops around the city, adding to the charm of the old town. Restaurants and shops are located along its banks, making for a picturesque experience - especially during the colors of fall.
One of the most amazing times to visit Český Krumlov is during autumn - the fall foliage, crisp weather, and smaller crowds all make it a perfect time to visit the city. The atmosphere coupled with the historic buildings of the old town makes it a fairytale experience!

@raynev1 Thanks for the kind words. I'm glad you enjoyed it!
@tariely Thanks for the comment I'm not actually doing anything too crazy on the pics - they're just SC4 pics and a couple clicks of a cloud brush that I downloaded in PS, same as what other CJ authors like MilitantRadical, SimCoug, and even Ln X have done in their entries. I know I did some more extensive pics in the past, like Victoria & Angel Falls - but I don't plan on making any more pics like that. And besides, not much reason to either, considering I can now BAT stuff like that - which you may be seeing in future entries I'm keeping the enhancements much smaller these days - mainly small stuff like the line I added on the road in the Pan-American Highway pic.

@simlacroix Thanks for the comment Yeah, it was difficult getting the right colors on the terrain - I had to make a number of modifications to my terrain mods to get the right look (most of what's out there is generally too green and saturated for my taste).
